SOUTH ORANGE, NJ -- Kaitlyn Cumiskey, a senior at New Providence High School, recently was honored last as the representative from New Providence High School for National Girls in Sports Day at the NJSIAA.
Student-athletes from 186 NJSIAA-member schools were honored on Feb. 9 at the event in the Richie Regan Recreation and Athletic Center at Seton Hall University.
Cumiskey is a three-sport standout at New Providence. As a junior, Cumiskey led all New Jersey girls lacrosse players in scoring with 112 goals. She is also a starter on the Pioneers' girls basketball team, which is 20-2, and a member of the cross-country team that won the Group 1 state championship in 2019.
Each school was eligible to send an athlete to the luncheon, which was held in conjunction with the 34th anniversary of the day, which highlights the achievements of female athletes, along with the advancements that have been made since the passage of Title IX in 1972.
The high school athletes were individually called onto the stage to receive a certificate recognizing their selection. The event included admission to the DePaul-Seton Hall women’s basketball game immediately afterward.
